Clinic Spotlight: Eagle Run

Eagle Run offers excellent care for the entire family at a convenient location in northwest Omaha. The staff at the Eagle Run clinic focuses on providing a caring and protective environment for its patients.

It’s through the experienced staff and providers that Eagle Run maintains excellent patient care.

Medical director, Jason Patera, MD, credits his team to living up to the mission of Nebraska Medicine.

“Eagle Run has a diverse staff of dedicated and motivated people that are focused on providing patient-centered care. From the time patients are welcomed by our great medical receptionists, to the time they are done having their labs drawn by our hardworking and dedicated medical assistants, the patients at Eagle Run are provided excellent service and in a friendly and welcoming environment.”

Over the past year, Eagle Run has welcomed two new physicians. Megan Willet, MD, joined the Eagle Run team in early January. She also serves as an assistant professor in the UNMC Department of Family Medicine. John Winters, MD, is also new to the team, serving Eagle Run in the Immediate Care setting.

“The providers are ensuring high quality, individualized care is being given to the patients to help “transform” their lives, as is the mission of Nebraska Medicine,” Dr. Patera said of the Eagle Run physicians.

While Eagle Run has embraced the additions to the team, an experienced nursing staff is also vital to their clinical operations.

Shirley Hartle, RN, and Leslie Pivovar, RN, have both been a part of the Eagle Run staff for over 10 years.

“Family Medicine sees everything, so the learning opportunities never end.  The feeling of satisfaction when a patient says ‘thanks for helping me feel better’ or ‘thanks for explaining that so clearly’ etc. is so worthwhile,” Pivovar said.

Hartle also finds fulfilment as a nurse. Especially when serving the assortment of patients that turn to Eagle Run for care.

“I continue to inspire my patients at the clinic with a variety of approaches to help them until they get it. They understand. They get it,” she said.

The dedication of the entire nursing staff does not go unnoticed.

“Behind the scenes, the nurses work relentlessly to continue that service to patients beyond the confines of the clinic. Our nurses are motivated and driven by a desire to improve the health outcomes of our patients, so we are increasing the amount of direct patient contact that the nurses have,” Dr. Patera said.

The Department of Family Medicine is proud to offer extraordinary care to families at Eagle Run Family Medicine.
